Exceptional 10.0
Best place to stay in Kyoto
A wonderful hotel, great location, impeccable service, fantastic food options. Attached to an amazing mall with so many restaurants and shops and right at the Kyoto Station for unbeatable train and subway connections. An absolute treat! I’ve been to Kyoto 3 times always staying at the Granvia and if I get another chance to be in Kyoto I know exactly where I will stay again!

Kids aren’t allowed at swimming pool
My kid was excited about swimming pool but kids weren’t allowed there. It was very disappointing. Also we requested non smoking room but rooms across the hallway was smoking room and we could smell cigarette entire our stay. I woke up couple of times because of the smell.

Great location and easy to find. Convenient transportation and nice view from room. King bed was nice and Granvia lounge and services were good - including concierge making dinner reservations to some of Kyoto’s restaurants.
